If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

It's a bonus post today because I was feeling experimental. I've been having a great time experimenting with the TtV (Through the Viewfinder) effect...and I've been thinking about our trip to Nashville/Sarasota a few years back. The result was a combination of the two.
I'm not quite sure if this is a true TtV or a fake one. I started with a photo I made when my wife and I spent some time in Nashville with friends. I then made a TtV photo of the printed photo (using a Kodak Brownie Reflex as the viewfinder camera and a G10 as the taking camera).
Nevertheless, I then did something I rarely do: really play around in Photoshop to get the final effect.
So here it is, today's bonus photo. It may be a TtV. it may be a fake TtV. It's full of vignetty goodness. It's got more Photoshopping than I normally put out there. It's a fantastic sign from a fantastic place from a fantastic trip. And there is just something about the final product that I really like. So, as I said, here it is.
